Family Smoothies With Frozen Nectarines & Pumpkin Pie Spice

IMG_6807

Have you seen the bags of frozen sliced peaches and nectarines at Trader Joe’s? They are a nice change from my usual go-to ingredients. Sometimes I need just a little more sweetness and some tartness to complete what I’m blending into my smoothie. I made these two smoothies during my next-day prep last night and I was really pleased with how smooth and balanced they turned out. There is not any one distinct flavor, including the pumpkin pie spice and banana. Both have a lightly creamy texture. The kids’ smoothie somehow tasted like a strawberry milkshake!

Winter Wedge Salad: Crispy Shredded Brussels & Apple Pecan Panzanella With Maple Vinaigrette

I find it hard to get my salad motivation on in the winter. I know I need to be eating more of them but something cold just doesn't sound desirable. I avoid warm toppings on this traditionally cold dish but this combination wins me over. This salad provides all of the opposing elements of food that [...]

Slow Cooker: Smoky “Meaty” African Peanut Stew

I had a West African Peanut Stew at a natural foods grocery store in Denver, CO a few years ago and it was so good. I think I forgot about it because I didn't think I would ever find it again and recreating it didn't even occur to me. One of the best parts of [...]

Spiced Lentil Quinoa Stew

Yes, I realize we are in the midst of summer and I am giving you stew. Nevertheless, everyone likes a piping hot meal and even better, a one pot meal. At the end of the day, even if a recipe calls for more ingredients than I would like, I will make it knowing it only requires [...]
